Dendrocellus micropectinatus Liang & Kavanaugh, 2007

Distribution in Angola (Provinces): 1) Malanje; 2) Huambo.

Material examined. Alto Hama (12° 13´20´´ S, 15° 32´57´´ E, 1512 m alt., 232) (HUAMBO), 31.X‒ 2.XI.2015, 1♂, 1♀, DO, A. Serrano & R. Capela leg., ASC. GoogleMaps

Remarks. A species known for Angola, Zambia and D. R. of the Congo (Liang & Kavanaugh 2007, Serrano 2008‒2009). It was recorded for the first time to Angola based on one male specimen collected in “Parque Nacional da Cangandala, a protected area for the emblematic giant sable antelope Hippotragus niger variani Thomas, 1916 . The new adult specimens collected in Huambo confirm its presence in Angola. Adult specimens were found at a wall during night near a public light together with other ground beetles (see C. rikatlensis remarks). It is a new record for the Huambo Province.
